NEFATARI SPARKLES AT NEW YORK’S ORACABESSA FESTIVAL
One of the few female artistes to have graced the stage at the recently held Oracabessa Festival at Roy Wilkins Park, Queens, New York, singer Nefatari sparkled in her short but entertaining stint.
Armed with her recently released single Money and Fast Cars and Queen of Queens, Nefatari worked the crowd and interacted like a seasoned veteran.
The New York based singer was well-received by the music loving audience who showed her a lot of love.
‘The most memorable moment for me on the stage was when I heard the response from the crowd when I asked for all the independent ladies to say yeah. To hear all the women in the audience scream out and let me know that they were with me in the park, that put me on a high and reminded me why I continue to do this’, Nefatari said in a media release.
It was Nefatari’s first time performing at the Irie Jam Radio-promoted event.
‘It was an amazing experience. I’m based in New York so to perform in my hometown to such a large crowd, was a moment I will never forget. I am thankful that Irie Jam Radio gave me the opportunity to bless the stage’, she added.
Nefatari is busy promoting her recently released single Money and Fast Cars. She spoke about the inspiration for the song.
Disc jockey Killa Boo from King Addies sound approached me and said he had an idea for a song he wanted me to sing that was inspired by Tracy Chapman’s Fast Cars. When he told me the concept for my version of the song I related to it immediately. It’s a song from a woman’s perspective about not lowering her standards of what she wants in a relationship and not being bribed by men with money’, Nefatari explained.
The song was produced by Killa Boo and Loud City. It is reportedly receiving strong rotation on radio stations in the US, the UK, Bermuda and Ghana.
‘Radio stations such as Irie Jam Radio, Roadblock Radio, Hot 97, and Vibe 103 FM have all been instrumental in the songs success so far’, she said.
A video for the song Queen of Queens was recently released on YouTube.
